Default midpipe adapter for brullen headers and cat

hi i recently installed the brullen headers and hi flow cat and i ahve yet to weld the cat back adapter in. i ahve an annoying exhaust leak because the stock flange on my greddy exhaust isnt big enough for the cat's donut, so i need to weld that piece in. if anyone has had this done, can a decent exhaust shop weld it in fora good price, becuase im not sure what i need to spend to cut the flange off and weld the new one in. i wouldnt imagine too much $ but im asking to see whos had it done be4 and whatnot. thanx

Default Brullen Adapter

I also just received my brullen headers. I went to Meineke to get my exhaust cut and the adapter welded on. I payed $30 for them to do it. I already had the headers bolted up. The exhaust section that had a huge leak in it also because the cat back section did not match the high flow cat. It took them about 10 mins to do. I did recheck their work and I found a leak, but they were nice about it and fixed it the next day. Make sure to use a lot of permatex on that one flange, and tighten it up as much as possible. That top nut and bolt is hard to get to. Anyway just my opinion I hope that helps.

I forgot one more thing. After they weld on your adapter, which I believe it mild stainless steel, when you get home or have time spray it with some anti rust high temp paint. Eventually those welds are going to rust and just take every precaution against that.

And have the shop flame test it for leaks, before they take your car off the rack. They didn't do mine the first time, but I made them flame check it for leaks the second time I went in. Saves you a lot of time and hassle to flame test it the first time. And if the people are nice there have them flame test everything the primaries, flange (where the driver side meets up with the collector), and both cat sections, and the welded adapter.

Make sure the O2 sensors are taped up really well. you don't want any water gettting in your rear O2 fix, or your front O2 extention. Just more of my opinions.
